Sources: Pease to be Named Coordinator

Sources have shared with FightinGators.com that Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease is expected to be named Florida's offensive coordinator in the very near future replacing the departed Charlie Weis. Pease comes to Florida with four years of playing experience in the NFL and ten years of coaching experience in division one football with eight seasons as an offensive coordinator.

Pease meets most if not all the criteria that Florida head coach Will Muschamp has publicly called for to fill the offensive coordinator position. Muschamp wants a seasoned play caller and eight years of experience fits that bill. He also wants a coordinator that has called plays in the SEC or other big time conference and Pease spent two years directing a very formidable Kentucky offense in 2001 and 2001 with also a stint at Baylor as the coordinator from 2003 to 2005.

Pease ran a pro-style offense at Boise State however it is more of a passing game than a running game finishing 11th in the nation in passing (309 yds. per game) and 40th in rushing (171 yds.). A controlled passing game that finished 5th in the country in scoring at 44.3 points per game.

Pease isn't a new name to the coaching search at Florida. The name has been linked to the position since late December. He was expected to visit Florida and then Alabama to see about their vacant coordinator position. FightinGators.com hears that the announcement should come very soon and Pease will not likely make that trip.

Pease played quarterback in college at Montana and professionally and has spent most of his coaching days coaching the quarterback position. he is expected to coach quarterbacks at Florida as well.

We are waiting on official word and will have more at the right time.
